Many employers are moving away from the traditionally defined benefits approach to a newer defined contribution model where employees are given a lump sum of money to purchase health benefits customized to fit their needs. This shift requires greater education for all parties on available benefits options to prepare someone for the unexpected. This session will help you understand the shift towards a defined contribution approach to health benefits and how it can be a positive move for both you and your employees.
